Monuments of India: Delhi, Agra, Khajuraho, Jaipur. (Volume 1)

Prof. P.C. Jain (Author) Dr. Daljeet (Author)
Synopsis Monuments of India has not any of its parameters or its own angles, or even its own diction to define or delineate a monument. It endeavours to read a monument's own diction, see from its own angle and assess its magnitudious- ness by its own parameters. Its vision of Taj is shere poetry, as Taj is a poem, a song, an elegy composed in marble, its interpretation of Khajuraho sculptures and building structures of Fatehpur Sikri is thought provoking as they were created by a mind that thought in a special way, and its depiction of forts for they were built for defense needs and their aesthetic beauty only mirrored their creators' taste. The 1st volume of Monuments of India' with its almost 170 photographs and comprehensive, though somewhat condensed, text, is an effort to see the monuments of Delhi, Agra, Fatehpur Sikri, Khajuraho, Jaipur and Amber in their fulness. It visualises their spectacular and aesthetic beauty, tries to assess their structural and architectural worth, finds their various related contexts and interprets their intrinsic meaning. 'Monuments of India' is a better vision of India's monuments.
